After the subtle change that "Driveclub" developer Evolution Studios did to the official Facebook page of the game, the speculations have been proven correct. There's something Japan coming to the title.

A new update has been announced in a new post where the developer details what's new and what has changed-and from the looks of the 3.33GB file, there's a lot in store for fans. Dubbed as the Game Update 1.10, the main attractions of the new content update includes new tracks, a new online game mode, better AI and weather visuals, among others.

The new online game mode is the Multiplayer Time Trial, while the five new tracks are added in Japan, which gives a total of 11 variants all in all. A sample from Lake Shoji shows off a few sakura blossoms along the highway towards the end of the track, as seen below. The other tracks include Nakasendo, Asagiri Hills, Takahagi Hills and Goshodaira, which can be seen in the post link above.

Gameplay for "Driveclub" has also been polished, with improvements in weather visuals, Drift Mode, AI drafting behavior, impact of collisions and some bug fixes. The Photomode has also seen a few improvements, which will come in handy when you start exploring the racetracks meant for Japan. There are now additional options when taking a photo and hiding controls when accessing Photo Mode.

Finally, between Jan. 27 to 29, there are add-ons coming in for "Driveclub." Among these are support for the Apex Expansion Pack and the Icona Vulcano, both of which are coming later this January. DualShockers reports that the free car is something of an obscure hypercar, which was first featured back in 2013. The car is said to cost 3.8 million dollars in real life, and boasts an acceleration speed of 0 to 120 mph in nine seconds. What's more, the Icona Vulcano will be the first East Asian car coming to "Driveclub."

There's also the Expansion Pack, which includes the Apex Car Pack and Apex Tour Pack. The entire expansion will bring in five new cars, 22 new events and 10 trophies. All you need to do is launch "Driveclub" and the update will automatically start up.

Despite all of these, however, there is still no news on the PS Plus Edition of the title. Evolution Studios did state that it will provide more details when available, but for those who are still thinking of whether or not "Driveclub" is worth trying on the PS4, VG 24/7 says that, yes, it is. As per the report, there are two things that make "Driveclub" work: Photo Mode and the weather dynamics.

The developer is looking at improving the weather dynamics even more in the latest update. And the Photo Mode has seen its fair share of successes in other games, including "The Last of Us: Remastered" and "inFamous: Second Son." The latter function is said to make the game one of the better-looking titles on the PS4 to date.
